Books to Give for Christmas - 2010

Are you struggling to find that perfect gift? Why not give a book? Some of the books I recommend are:

If God is Good by Randy Alcorn - This book wrestles with the problem of evil and suffering. It is filled with good stories and illustrations. If you have a friend in a difficult season of life, this book will do them spiritual good.

Vintage Jesus by Mark Driscoll - Mark is the pastor of Mars Hill church in Seattle, Washington. One of the hallmarks of their church is a focus on Christ. With a refreshing mixture of comedy and theology, Mark explains the greatness of Christ is a way everyone can understand.

Heaven by Randy Alcorn - While this is one of the longest and most intellectual books on heaven you will find, it is engaging and easy to read. If a loved one has recently died or if you want to whet your appetite for what lies beyond the grave for those with Jesus, enjoy this great read.

Money, Possessions and Eternity by Randy Alcorn - I recommended this book last year but it is good enough to make my list again. Without doubt, this is one of the best books on the subject of money and Christ. You will be challenged and encouraged on how to use your resources for eternity.
